Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

The Sweet Taste of Success?

Our society has gorged itself on the sweet taste of success.

We've filled our plates from a buffet of books that range from dressing for success to investing for success . . . .

We've gobbled down stacks of notebooks, cassette albums, and video tapes in our hunger for greater success.

The irony of all this is that . . . instead of fulfillment, we experience the bloated sensation of being full of ourselves—our dreams, our goals, our plans, our projects, our accomplishments.

The result of this all-you-can-eat appetite is not contentment. It's nausea.
